7:01 am
better served if we don't keep interrupting each other. >> smirking laughing smiling. >> i thought it was rude. >> he did everything but pat him on the head. paul ryan had a solid performance but he was always on defense. >> in terms of who dominated the debate, joe biden dominated. >> the key to winning one of these debates is to lower speculation expectations about your speaking skills and joe biden's been doing that for four years. retired space shuttle "endeavour" is on its final journey this morning. >> to its final home at the california science center. nobel peace prize of 2012 is to be awarded to the european union. >> got out of hand during a debate of veteran congressmen forced to run against each other. can you imagine finding this? a giant eyeball. the discovery has marine biologists and all of us completely stunned. detroit tigers are headed to
7:02 am
the american league championship series and a swing and a miss. san francisco giants will advance to the nlcs. >> all that -- >> what happened? did you lose something? >> my buddy, joe biden for just making stuff up. >> used poor judgment when it published pictures of the vice presidential nominee pumping iron just hours before last night's debate. >> did you guys see me? come to the debate stay for the gun show. captioning funded by cbs captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning." joe biden and paul ryan clashed time and time again throughout last night's vice presidential debate both men under pressure governor romney building momentum after the first presidential dough bait.
7:03 am
>> 50% said biden won, 31% said ryan won and 19% called it a tie. also in that poll 55% said biden is someone they can relate to. 21 points higher than before the debate. ryan's relatability went up 17 points to 48% and 85% said biden is knowledgeable about the issues and 75% said the same thing about paul ryan. jan crawford is at the debate site in danville, kentucky. jan, good morning. >> good morning, norah. good morning charlie. good morning to those of you in the west. the president tried to explain that lackluster performance at the debate of being too polite. the vice president surely can't say that about his performance last night. he came out of the block, never stopped. to the point republicans are now saying he interrupted paul ryan 82 times. >> with all due respect, that's a bunch of mularkey. >> the vice president appeared to take the president's advice. joe just needs to be joe. >> this is a bunch of stuff.
7:04 am
look, here is the deal. >> biden's giant personality went into overdrive. within seconds he was interrupting ryan. >> what we're say inging is -- >> i hope i'll get time to respond to this. >> you'll get time. >> spent most of the night on the offensive. >> these guys bet against america all the time. >> biden was trying to turn things around after the president's we can debate performance. ryan called him out. >> notice -- >> mr. vice president, i know you're under a lot of duress to make up for lost ground but i think people will be better served if we don't keep interrupting each other. >> reporter: but biden continued to cut him off, hitting on topics that the president had missed last week like romney's comments about the 47% of americans who don't pay federal income taxes. ryan tried to turn romney's comments on biden. >> with respect to that quote i think the vice president very well knows that sometimes the words don't come out of your mouth the right way. >> reporter: biden shot back. >> 47%, you think he just made a
7:05 am
mistake, then i think you're -- i got a bridge to sell you. >> reporter: he also went after romney's plan for tax cuts. >> not mathematically possible. >> it is. it's been done before. it's precisely what we're proposing. >> it's never been done before. >> it's been done a couple of times. jack kennedy lowered tax increase growth. ronald reagan -- >> now you're jack kennedy? >> chairman of the budget committee stood his ground. >> this is what politicians do when they don't have a record to run on. try to scare people from voting for you. >> pressured on romney's plan to reform social security and medicare, ryan didn't back down. >> they haven't put a credible solution on the table. he'll tell you about vouchers. he'll say all these things to try to scare people. >> reporter: silenced the vice president, almost by connecting the president's jobs record to biden's hometown. >> joe and i are from similar
7:06 am
towns. he's from scranton pennsylvania. i'm from wisconsin. do you know what the unemployment rate in scranton is today? >> i sure do. >> it's 10%. >> yeah. >> do you know what it was the day you guys came in? it's 8.5%. >> yeah. >> that's the way it's going all around america. >> trying to change the subject. he may have some cleanup of his own to do today on libya. he said last night the administration didn't know about additional security requests there in benghazi. of course, that was the subject of a house hearing this week where state department officials said multiple requests for additional security were denied. you can expect to hear a lot more about this today. charlie charlie, norah? >> jan crawford, thank you. with us now former house speaker newt gingrich, former presidential candidate and jennifer granholm a host on current television. good morning. >> good morning. >> clearly with respect to democrats, there was much applause for vice president biden. with respect to this election
7:07 am
did it change anything especially for independents and undecideds? >> let's just say your cbs poll of your viewers was brilliant. clearly, it stopped the romney momentum. clearly, joe biden fights for real people. he clearly has a heart for real people. he had passion. he was relatable. i think he did what he had to do. >> but 82 times interrupting congressman ryan did he come off as rude? >> i don't think so. i mean again, your poll shows that he came off as more relatable. and he couldn't just let misstatements lie there. he had to step in. otherwise, the -- >> let me come back to the question. the next debate is now becoming much more crucial. what did it do for the race between romney and obama? >> i think -- first of all, i think each guy did what they had to do. paul ryan, this is his first big national moment.
7:08 am
he was 2 years old when biden became a u.s. senator. biden has had a lifetime to be a national figure. last night in 90 minutes, paul ryan, much more than just the nomination, he began somebody -- your own poll showed people thought he was knowledgeable, competent, capable. so ryan is doing better. biden was quintessentially biden. in 2008 in his famous debate with palin, he says come with me to restaurant in wimgton wilmington. it had been closed 20 years earlier. biden was so wrong on benghazi last night it will haunt them till the next debate. >> ryan accused biden, said it took the president two weeks to acknowledge this was a terrorist attack. the president did say right after the attack that it was an act of terror. and then biden said we weren't told they wanted more security there. we did not know they wanted more security. as jan pointed out, we've had house hearings that said they asked the state department
7:09 am
multiple times for more security. is this a problem for the administration? >> with regard to the debate and the election i don't think people will be voting on benghazi. i think they will be voting on who do you trust? when joe boyden looked in the camera and said who do you trust on these issues people felt like he's right. yes, the situation is evolving and he acknowledged that the situation is evolving and they're doing an investigation. but for this election, what's most important is how are these plans going to help me as a person in this economy? and those segments on the economy last night were fabulous. >> let me just say governor granholm focused in on a key word. who do you trust? president of the you stays has doubled down on the vice president who for weeks has methodically misled the american people. >> that's not true. >> it is true. they said flatly this week they never thought it related to the video. they always thought it was terrorism. the state department has said they asked for the security. the ambassador's own diary says
7:10 am
he asked for the security. if you want to talk about trust, having the ambassador and three other americans killed while the president lies to you -- >> what intelligence did they get? >> within hours it showed it was a terrorist attack. people in the intelligence community said immediately it was an attack. state department said this week we never thought it was about the video. >> mr. speaker, the head of the national intelligence said their intelligence was not clear in the beginning. they did change their assessment over time to say that they did not yet know it was a terrorist attack. >> every political appointee is rallying around, doing what political appointees are supposed to do. >> with respect to the politics of this, are you saying that the obama administration misled because they were worried about the political considerations of what happened in benghazi? >> you have to ask why as recently as last night -- you're asking the judgment about motive. i don't know. as recently as last night the
7:11 am
vice president of the united states misled and misinformed the american people for, i presume, political purposes. >> you just accused the president of lying to the american people. >> yes. >> i mean the intelligence was unclear. >> that's true. >> there's an investigation going on. honestly, there's no advantage for the administration to mislead the american people on something that is a tragedy like this. >> i wonder, though how much voters -- this is an important issue, certainly, and the administration should be held accountable, if they made misstatements. but how much is this election going to turn on foreign policy? jobs and the economy are still the number one issue. and this was a pretty fierce debate between biden and ryan last night. >> and on that question did paul ryan answer the question with respect to the $5 trillion where those deductions can come from and does the arithmetic work? >> no. that's where joe biden was extremely effective. it does not add up.
7:12 am
you cannot lower the tax rates by 20% plus increase defense spending, plus keep the bush cuts in place and not remove deductions that impact the middle class and still balance the budget. it doesn't work. >> the fact is i wish we would stick to the economy. i wish we would stick to the price of gasoline which was $5.87 in california yesterday. >> is this a concession then? >> no, no. i think there's more ground to be gained by romney on the economy than anyplace else. >> he can't answer the question. what are the deduction ss he would get rid of? >> he doesn't need to answer the question right now. >> he does. >> what he needs to say -- you have a president who had every single democrat in the senate vote against his budget. to say romney has to beat a bigger standard than obama -- >> obama put out a plan. >> we have to end this here. you certainly make tuesday night more interesting. >> thank you. >> newt gingrich and governor granholm. we want to go to an update
7:13 am
of that girl who has become a hero around the world. this 14-year-old girl shot by the pakistani taliban for speaking out against them. a source inside pakistan's intelligence community tells cbs news that two people including an important suspect, are now in custody. the source would not say if either of them is the gunman. elizabeth palmer is reporting from pakistan's capital, islamabad. >> reporter: malala yousafzai is unconscious on a ventilator in a hospital near islamabad. a brain scan is offering a ray of hope. a single bullet entered her head but only grazed her brain and lodged in her chest cavity. doctors then did surgery to take out a piece of her skull to relieve the pressure. the next 36 hours, obviously, will be critical to her survival and well-being. all of pakistan is outraged at this act of violence. there have been vigils in schools and special prayers in mosques across the country.

7:15 am
regulation. >> we've had this huge fungal meningitis outbreak, you're worried because of the lack of oversight, there could be other things in the future we learn about. >> absolutely. what the state official said yesterday in a big conference between the cdc, fda and the state of massachusetts, it seems like a pop up in the short left field, behind the shortstop and in front of the left fielder. the left fielder is the fda. the shortstop is the department of health. each one of them is saying we don't really have the authority. >> how quickly can the health community develop a way to deal with this? >> they're saying they need new laws because the fda said yesterday, one of the attorneys, spokesperson said we simply don't have the regulations we need now in order to address this situation. >> dr. jon lapook has been following this closely. thank you, doctor. we appreciate it. this morning also the boy scouts of america organization is accused of a century-long cover-up hiding evidence of sexual abuse by scout leaders. as john blackstone reports, the
7:16 am
secrecy is ending with a wave of evidence now posted online for everyone to see. >> reporter: tom stewart became a cub scout in 1970 and almost immediately became a victim of his scout master. >> i was in scouting with my brother, matt. and we were sexually abused for the better part of ten years from age 8 to 18. >> reporter: he says he is just one of many boy scouts who have been molested by those they trusted. >> it's not easy for me to get up here and talk about this. but, you know i do want to speak for all the victims that can't speak for themselves. >> reporter: there have been hundreds, if not thousands of other victims documented by the boy scouts in what came to be called the perversion files. in 1935 "the new york times" reported the group created a red flag list naming almost 900 men removed for, quote moreal perversion. patrick boil collected boxes of the files released during court
7:17 am
cases against the scouts. >> these files are an incredible treasure trove of information about how molesters operate within this organization. >> reporter: boy scouts have resisted legal efforts to make more of the files public. details have been put online listing the names of some 1,900 scout leaders suspected or convicted of abusing children. victims' rights attorney tim kosnoff posted the list. >> more than 6,000 files exist today and the rate at which they are opened up continues to be on average, one every other day. >> reporter: januariette warren a professor of psychiatry says the boy scouts created the perversion files to identify suspected child molesters and get them out of scouting. >> they've been consistent. they've been diligent and they've kept up a very sustained effort to use it to protect children. >> reporter: victims disagree. tom stewart says the files may have protected the boy scouts but did not protect him.
7:18 am
>> scouting does have some good points. however right now it's a very dangerous program for young boys. >> reporter: next week more of the boy scout perversion files will come out when 20,000 pages are posted online by order of a court in oregon. names have been removed but the files will detail aalleged sexual abuse over 20 years by scout masters and volunteers. for cbs th"cbs this morning," john blackstone, los angeles. it is time now to show you some of this morning's headlines. defense secretary leon panetta warns that the united states is vulnerable to a cyber pearl harbor from "the new york times." financial network, transportation network and government. he says those hackers are getting more aggressive. wall street journal reports on a slowdown of job growth because some are worried about the so-called fiscal cliff at the end of the year.

7:31 am
moving a lot more slowly this time around. bill, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. it is incredible watching this shuttle do something it was never intended to do travel through city streets. now it's going to take about two days to go from los angeles international airport to its new home at the science center. while it is not the riskiest mission it is certainly the most complicated endeavor ever. after "endeavour" landed in l.a. three weeks ago it was plugged from its carrier, propped on a steel beam support, pushed into a huge hangar, a delicate time consuming process made quick and easy in this time laps video about the "l.a. times." all in preparation for its last and wildest ride. >> a lot of responsibility. >> i haven't stressed on jobs in a lot of years but i've had

7:33 am
transporter is roughly 375,000 pounds. so we're laying the plates on the ground to protect the streets from deflecting and cracking the pipes underneath. >> reporter: power lines are being raised so the tail can pass by. >> that way we can keep the power on for consumers in this area, we don't need to have outages. >> basically we're closed. >> reporter: merchants along the route like randy's donuts are closing anyway. he welcomes the shuttle but says the commotion is scaring customers away. >> who is going to buy doughnuts? both streets are closed. you can't go on the sidewalk. >> reporter: now as the sitting hollywood's biggest new star "endeavour" is traveling with a huge entourage. operators, lapd, s.w.a.t. team, bomb squad, utility crews. moving at a snail's pace "endeavour" should be at its new home late saturday night.

8:03 am
wanted more security. we did not know they wanted more security. >> reporter: congressman ryan called it evidence of a larger problem at the white house. >> what we are watching on our tv screens is the unraveling of the obama policy. >> this was the anniversary of 9/11. it was libya a country where we knew we had al qaeda cells there. we didn't give our ambassador in benghazi a marine detachment. >> this lecture on embassy security -- the congressman here cut embassy security by $300 million below what we asked for. so much for the embassy security piece. >> over the course of the debate biden and ryan trang ld on afghanistan ryan argued the administration made a mistake by announcing its timeline for withdrawing u.s. troops. biden pushed back. >> that's right, because that's the afghan responsibility. we've trained them. >> not in the east. >> you'd rather americans be going in and doing the job?
8:04 am
>> we're already sending americans to do the job, but fewer of them. >> that's right. we're sending in more afghans to do the job afghans to do the job. >> reporter: ryan argued the obama administration hadn't done enough to halt iran's nuclear ambitions. biden wanted to know what he would do differently. >> they're moving faster toward a nuclear weapon. it's because this administration has no credibility on this issue. it's because this administration watered down sanctions, delayed sanctions, tried to stop us from putting tough sanctions in place. >> these are the most crippling sanctions in the history of sanctions period period. when governor romney was asked about it, he said we've got to keep these sanctions. when you say you're talking about doing war are you going to go to war? is that what you want to do? >> we want to prevent war. >> reporter: gayle and charlie, that's how it went all night long on iran syria al qaeda. rye yarn made the case that the white house hadn't done enough while biden pushed the notion

8:07 am
voters. he may have even turned them off. but swing voters will make their decision on the top of the ticket. if that's the downside, it's one that probably won't matter. >> you mentioned there was a lot of cheering for joe biden, reenergizing the base. is it troubling to some that this close to the election people feel the base needs to be reenergized? is that an issue? >> you want to have your base rushing behind you at this time. that's what romney did so well. republicans had been kind of tentative about him. in his performance, he goes to the rallies, he says hello and they go crazy. well it's bad the democrats were feeling panicked and sad about obama's performance. now they can kind of feel little more passion -- and this is quite important because in a lot of these battleground states early voting has started. they want to get people out there. >> you make the point this is all about joe. if you're a democrat you like what you saw and you thought he commanded the debate f. you're republican you thought maybe he was smiling and interrupting too

much. what about paul ryan? >> well, paul ryan i think the first time ever in this kind of setting, had to deal with this an tick character to his right. >> antic character. >> what the obama people like, he was out there being a passionate warrior for the middle class. a little sloppy but it was clear. ryan was having to do a lot of defending of mitt romney. that's a tough place to be in. but i think people i've talked to think ryan did a fine job. it was not like the obama-romney debate where everybody thought, not only did romney win, but obama lost. >> we've had circumstances in which the vice presidential dom nominee didn't do as well as expected. john edwards for one, sarah palin perhaps. >> no harm to the ticket and no harm to his future prospects. >> and the other question, what about joe biden in terms of what he did with respect to his

gazillion pages of the book. it starts with a brutal crime set in yemen. very timely. >> yeah. this is like the sixth book with my character john corey who is nypd homicide detective, now a contract agent with the joint terrorist task force and his wife is fbi special agent kate mayfield. the previous five books were set in the states, mostly the new york area. this is the first one i took him out of the country and he got assigned to go there. he doesn't want to go there. he goes to yemen to look for the panther. the panther is a yemeni american born in new jersey raised here went to colombian university but took up the cause of jihad, went back to his ancestral home in yemen. i postulate, this is based a little on truth he was one of the master mines of the u.s.s. cole bombing. >> that's the premise of it. >> how much of you book is fact
8:40 am
and how much is fiction? you're clearly weaving in what have been some terrorism news events in the past? >> i look at the facts as the skeleton of the book. the facts are all true. if they sound true, they probably are true. but novels make it up. you've got to make up the dialogue. it all hangs on the -- the incident was the "u.s.s. cole" bombing. the joint terrorist task force is stationed in foreign countries, yemen being one of them. so the facts are there. this is not a primmer on how to fight terrorism. if you read the book you'll learn something. >> i took it almost like a history lesson of yemen and their culture. i thought when he went to yemen, he must have learned so much and then you said -- have you been to yemen? >> no. >> you must know know people to get the detail. >> i do know people. i usually go wherever my book is set. when i had a book set in moscow
8:41 am
i went to moscow. >> why didn't you go to yemen? >> i was invited not to go to yemen. two years ago when i was writing the book it was a shot spot. now there's total chaos there. i wanted to go. my wife said don't go. >> always good, isn't it norah, when a man listens to his wife? >> it's been dangerous. we just learned a security chief assassinated in yemen. where do you get the ideas from your stories? and how many current counterterrorism officials do you talk to for your research? >> i have some good sources in the joint terrorist task force which is located at downtown 26th federal plaza. i've been doing this for a while now. some of the people i spoke to initially are retired. they tend to speak more freely when they're retired. even retired people don't want to be acknowledged in the book, but i kind of fell into this ten years ago, happening to know people who worked for 26 fed

with the joint terrorist task force. >> are you friends with our john miller? he could be a great help to you? are you friends with him? you should meet him. >> john did one of my first interviews back in 1978 when i did my first book "by the rivers of babylon." >> thank you, nelson demille. congratulations. it's a page-turner as they say.

8:48 am
is it based on scientology in any form? >> it is loosely based on scientology and the start of that. scientology became something much different and larger. but, yeah for sure. the starting point was investigating what that movement was and how it began and how -- >> so your conclusions about it scientology? >> you know my conclusions are -- proibbly thought about it initially. everybody thought it was kind of peculiar. i wasn't quite sure what it was. and now i think it's no more weirder than anything else out there. i think it helps a lot of people. it works. whatever it does for them it works. and i don't exactly -- >> tom cruise is a scientologyist. >> did you show the movie to tom? >> sure. >> what was his reaction? >> it was a good reaction and healthy. >> also isn't had a harvey
